      Review ofCodioCodio

      I think, this is the best online IDE nowadays. I'm using it for months. Fast, cool, easy to use. I have a license for PhpStorm (but I'm using it for Nodejs/Angularjs now), but I almost never use my desktop IDE because Codio is the first for which can really replace it. I simply don't need anything else. And for $8 you can work on unlimited private projects! That's cool. I also loved the support and the way they communicated, when there was a problem with the service. Their communication was honest and quick.

      Review ofNitrous.IONitrous.IO

      Nothing but good things to say about Nitrous; it's fast, reliable, easy to use and appears to have very few chinks in the armour.

      It integrates easily with Github, easy to install Drupal, and amazingly enough it runs Magento well straight off the bat!

      Definitely recommend.

      Review ofNitrous.IONitrous.IO

      I use Nitrous.io as my primary development environment now for MeteorJS app development. I can work from anywhere, anytime. The environments are reliable, fast, and support is good. Been hacking away for about 3 months full-time and no hitches.

      This is my go-to when I can't use my IDE of choice (Sublime/Gulp workflow). Robust, accessible anywhere, and the free version gives me everything I need to get work done.
